Ethics review needed for AI use in health care
In a perspective piece, Stanford researchers discuss the ethical implications of using machine-learning tools in making health care decisions for patients.
Neuroanatomy lab bridges virtual reality, OR
Stanford’s Department of Neurosurgery has a new anatomy lab next door to its virtual reality center. Together, the labs are a valuable resource for trainees and surgeons alike.
Sperm-filtering tool picks best swimmers
A new sperm-sorting device built at Stanford filters the unfit from the fit and could help improve infertility treatments.
Stanford to collaborate on Apple Heart Study
The study will make use of an app to determine whether the Apple Watch’s heart-rate sensor can help detect a heart condition known as atrial fibrillation.
Following footsteps to obesity clues
Stanford researchers collected motion data from smartphones as a way to measure activity across hundreds of thousands of people to help figure out why obesity is a bigger problem in some countries than others.
Supersize your ideas at the HIVE
A room featuring a 10-by-24-foot ultra-high-resolution display can be reserved by university faculty and staff for uses such as interactive instruction, teleconferences, collaborative data analysis and thesis defenses.
Virtual tour of the brain
Stanford Medicine is using a new software system that combines imaging from MRIs, CT scans and angiograms to create a three-dimensional model that physicians and patients can see and manipulate — just like a virtual reality game.
Center for Digital Health awards first grants
The grant-winning projects are designed to study whether creative uses of the Apple Watches can achieve meaningful health care outcomes.
How accurate are fitness devices?
A Stanford inquiry into the accuracy of seven wristband activity monitors showed that six out of seven devices measured heart rate within 5 percent. None, however, measured energy expenditure well.
Wearable monitor can diagnose disease
A wearable sensor developed by Stanford researchers can diagnose diseases by measuring molecular constituents of sweat, such as chloride ions and glucose.
